Rock Zero Backblast

Rock Zero Backblast

23 with an FNG this morning for Rock Zero. Saw Hoover and Flipper pre-running. May have been others. Disclaimer given and we took off. KB crew was doing their thing in the next parking lot over.

Mosey around campus up near the church. Stop at parking lot in front of the gym and circle up.


IW x 15 IC

Merkin x 10 IC

Alt Shoulder Taps x 10 IC

Mountain Climber x 10 IC

Low Slow Squat x 10 IC

Flutter x 20 IC

Mosey over to Rock Pile and grab a rock.

Rock Set

15s: Curl/Tri Extension/Thruster with 5 Rockee finish

Mosey toward the picnic area by the launch lot. Bear crawl through the courtyard next to the faux grass. Continue mosey to Avenue of Trees turnaround. 15 Heels to Heaven/15 High Flutter each leg. Continue to picnic tables.

Bench Set

15 Step Up/15 Dips/15 Derkins

Turn around and go back with a stop at the turnaround for 15 Heels to Heaven/15 High Flutter and back to your rock.

Repeat until called. We got 3 reps after the intro round. Mary and plank series when completed to regroup. T-claps to the Nantan, Alf, for going back and bringing in the six.

Mosey to Avenue of Trees. Run down the Avenue with a stop at every other tree for 6 Merkins. Mosey back. Plank o rama.

Mosey back to the launch lot.



Proehl set the pace early for the AMRAP set. Alf was close behind with Slow Roll and YHC not too far back. Alf reeled in Proehl to take the win for the set. The quarantine has not slowed him down. Well done. Strong work by all.

FNG Spaceballs put in a strong showing. He is a RESPECT. Great to have him out and T-claps to Hops for the EH.

Speaking of RESPECTS, we had IH, Sweetness, Runstopper, Beaver, Snowflake, OT, and Cottonmouth in this category. Almost 1/3 of our group. Well done, men.

Plenty of mumblechatter this morning. Had Spackler shown, it may have been damn near impossible to maintain order.

Great to have a nice sized, COVID-19 compliant group this morning. Also very nice to have some fellowship at Coffeeteria afterwards. Thanks to Geraldo and Hoover for the opportunity to Q Rock Zero and to Iron Horse for the takeout prayer.

No announcements that YHC can remember. If you have any questions about those new-fangled hammer massagers, or whatever they are called, ask Flippper. He has a pretty sweet model that I am sure most of us would welcome in the arsenal. Have a great weekend men.

Great Q, Mermaid — organizationally, dealing with all the mumble chatter, and the pain delivery. I was hurting…still am. Couldn’t hear some of Mermaid’s instructions over Semi-Gloss’ diarrhea…of the mouth. T-claps to Snowflake for running in. That was a fun crew. Forgotten how cool it is when you get a 20+ crowd like that.
Good to finally meet Slow Roll as well.
Motorboat was hiding his rock in some curious places. And speaking of hidden things, I shudder to think what’s hidden inside Pro’s beard.
Other quick observations:
Runstopper nearly ran over our FNG Spaceballs when he pulled in.
Alf blamed his M for his later than normal arrival.
Floorslapper was on time. O’Tannenbaum was not.
YHC on Q next week at RockZero. Few things the pax can count on: a much weaker disclaimer than Mermaid, we will get off the pavement some (admittedly way too wet today), Makthar N’djaiye’s & CCV’s.
